Opinion on impact of COVID-19 lockdown on purchasing non-essentials India 2020

According to a survey about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on Indians in March 2020, a majority of respondents had no critical non-essential purchases during the lockdown. About 56 percent needed home supplies, and most of these needed them ordered online. In contrast, about eight percent each for online and local purchases required electronics in order to attend online classes or be able to work from home.

India implemented a lockdown for 21 days, announced on March 24, 2020. This was after the "Janata Curfew" on March 22, 2020 - a so-called practice lockdown. Panic-buying commenced among consumers days before the lockdown was announced, much like in other countries. This lockdown was the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people.
